hand-made bowls

I made these bowls by rolling slab of clay > cut out circle shape slab > lay slab over a bowl that is turned upside down (covered with cotton material so that the clay doesn’t stick to the bowl) > shape the clay so that it sits nicely over the bowl and trim the edges > create pattern by pressing in lace > when clay is dry enough you can take the new bowl off and sit upright > paint inside with a black underglaze > scratch out the words and let dry > 1st firing > apply 3 coats of clear glaze > 2nd firing.
